YRC Logistics, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc., announced the opening of a new office in Buenos Aires, Argentina. YRC Logistics says it is increasing its presence in Latin America by providing global logistics services to, from and within Argentina. With the new office, the company says it will be able to continue to provide clients with international air and ocean freight forwarding services.

“This is an important part of the future for YRC Logistics,” says Jim Ritchie, president and chief executive officer of the Overland Park, Kan.-based company. “Our deep experience with our clients in this region will enable YRC Logistics to exceed client expectations in Argentina with our global logistics services. Our expansion into Latin America heavily supports our business volumes with clients we have served in the Latin American region for quite some time, and this addition is a result of excellent service.”

YRC Logistics says the Buenos Aires office is supported by extensive Latin American coverage, including both YRC Logistics local offices in Colombia, Chile, Peru and Mexico, and its partner network throughout Latin America.
